Chewy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies are full of old fashioned oats, dark chocolate chips, and semisweet chocolate chips. They're perfect with a glass of milk!
I realized a few months ago that I don't have a ton of cookie recipes on my blog. And the majority of them that are on here, are from quite awhile ago. That doesn't mean I don't make cookies - I just make a lot of the same recipes over and over! I also realized I've never shared my favorite Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe with you! So here we are.
I am pretty much always on team "Chewy" when it comes to cookies. I mean, I'll never pass up a crunchy cookie but I love a good chewy cookie. These chewy oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are no exception.
Old Fashioned Oats - this lends a chewier texture to the cookies than quick oats, although you can use quick oats if that's all you have.
Chocolate Chips - I use a combination of semisweet and dark chocolate chips.
Chill Your Dough - It's definitely worth the extra 30 minutes to chill the cookie dough after making it and prior to baking. It keeps the oatmeal chocolate chip cookies a bit thicker and they won't spread as much.
Use a Combination of Semi-sweet and Dark Chocolate Chips - I love dark chocolate but also wanted some chocolate chips that were a little sweeter and I loved the combination of the two
Bake Until Slightly Golden - watch the cookies carefully at the end and only bake until they start to turn golden on the edges - they will set up more once they cool!
